MVP Talk in Spring Training: Because We’re Stuck in a Rut

This is the time in spring training where there’s not much to talk about. This is a good problem to have. The Sox have little injury news of note (Adam Engel, Jimmy Cordero and Jace Fry are the headliners now that Yasmani Grandal is back). There are no controversies like the Yankees and Phillies wrestlingContinue reading “MVP Talk in Spring Training: Because We’re Stuck in a Rut”
